I'd use an audio to USB interface and go that way.

I use some very old Edirol UA20 interfaces, I don't know if they are still being made, but if not I'm sure something newer, similar and probably better is out there.

They have a guitar impedance matched input, and by using a USB port you bypass the limited bandwidth of the sound card's audio input, have no impedance mismatches (cleaner sound) and no static possibilities if that tiny little phone plug gets bumped.

I'd use an audio interface also. I use an Audio Kontrol. If your amp has a line out or phones output you could use it. Some pedalboards also have USB and line out outputs.
